How can one describe Immortals? Well, Greek hero Theseus (Henry Cavill) needs to get a crazy bow and arrow in order to destroy an evil king (Mickey Rourke) while also protecting a beautiful oracle (Freida Pinto), or something like that. This flick is a prime example of Hollywood totally ripping off Greek mythology, and instead of doing so and making something awesome, like, say, the original Clash of the Titans, this movie feels more like, well … the terrible remake of Clash of the Titans. Tarsem Singh, a director known for visually striking films, has made a bland, obvious 300 imitation that looks cheap and muddy despite a $75 million price tag. The core problem, however, is the screenplay, which feels like something a kid would make up while playing with his action figures.
